The Problem Statement My daily driver is a 2015 Volkswagen Jetta SEL TDI - I love the car - it gets great fuel mileage (TDI = Diesel) where I can get almost 700 miles on a tank of fuel (on a flat highway). The only downside (and I knew it at the time) was that CarPlay had just been announced around six months before and it would be at least a year before most car manufacturers would announce support for it.
